in the obama era. the one new tax that he did propose is on the superrism rich with regard to dividends on stocks. what you are talking about is that it is written by so many rich people. labor is harder, and you care about that money more. the obama proposal beyond what we are talking about goes after those dividends and that is a way to fight economic equality right now. >> we tax labor higher than we tax capitol. the republicans believe it does, they believe the higher you tax something the more you are discouraging it. there is bill crystal asking why do we want to tax labor more than capitol? that is the question. >> it is interesting. you are are seeing rank and file members of the party. you are starting to see the troops fall away. what would happen if for instance the senate bill were to be voted on in the house? >> they want to do it. and it would pass. we would have to get into these other questions. >> polls favoring the president in his approach and the outcome that he wants. and the polls i don't think that rush are limbaugh is reading those polls. >> there is no way to co
? hidden in a new obama health care law a fee that will be passed on to millions of americans. it is $63 a head. it kicks in 2014. the fee is help meant to cover people with preexisting conditions under the new health care law which is big part of that. the obama administration says the fee is only temporary. they believe that costs overall will lower, over time and then they will be able to phase that out in 2017, unless congress decides to extend the fee if those cost savings don't seem to materialize. if history is any guide congress almost never finds parting with new taxes very easy. several large companies will end up paying tens of millions of dollars in the fee. maybe a few hundred dollars for the small firms. most will get passed on to workers. it is a tax increase no matter how you look at it really.

to use sarin gas. as the "new york times" pointed out earlier today, president obama now seems to be changing his position. now, their report reads in part, quote, in the past week amid intelligence reports that some precursor chemicals have been mixed for possible use as weapons, mr. obama's red line appears to have shifted. his warning against moving weapons has disappeared from his public pronouncements as well as those of secretary of state hillary rodham clinton. if we hold the president accountable for what he said in august, we've crossed the red line. joining us is former new mexico governor bill richardson and andrew mccarthy. governor, he said that we have -- you know, a red line is here for us if we start seeing chem weapons being moved around. chemical weapons are being moved around. now he actually shifted his statement today, if they used them. what does that show but weakness for america if he doesn't mean what he says? >> well, i don't believe the president has changed his position. i'm not privy to all the discussions, but it's been very clear that the latest w

and the obama administration, the nation's jobless rate fell to 7.7% in november as employers added 146,000 new jobs. the jobless rate hasn't been this low during the entire obama administration, but that's only part of the story. a closer look also shows a big reason behind today's drop in the unemployment rate is that 350,000 people dropped out of the work force in november. they're discouraged, many of them are, that they simply quit and they're trying to find work. christine romans joins us from new york. we saw the unexpected drop in the unemployment rate, but christine, take us a little behind the numbers that make up the headlines. >> 7.7% is that unemployment rate, the lowest since december, 2008, from before the president took office. 146,000 jobs created, twice what economists have been expecting. they really didn't see the pull back because of hiring being depressed because of hurricane sandy. maybe you'll see some of that in the next month, but this was a strong report on its surface. digging in the numbers. look at the right side on that graphic, 14.4% underemployment. the percenta

. voters seem to favor the president. a new poll shows that 53% trust president obama to avoid the fiscal cliff compared to just 36% for republicans. let's bring in juan williams. he -- is it to make sure the republican take the blame for whatever happens? >> no. i will say this, the reason the president has been out campaigning is to amp up the politicallpressure on republicans and let them feel the heat from the public as a prospect that they would but taxes go up on everyone wheee there is a deal that would keep taxes down for 98% of the public. dagen: what about sticking to their guns? the president said he will not cut a deal without raising taxes on the wealthier americans. maybe they go off a little bit. is that a compromise that both sides would be willing to, well, eat? >> that is exactly the compromise that everyone around washington is discussing. the number that everyone is focusing on is the 37%. you also have, as part of that package, discussions about exactly how much, dagen, they would cut in terms of entitlement. dagen: secretary geithner caught in an interview that he ga
% at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, taking $2,000 to $3,000 from an averaged family. the house passed legislation to protect our nation from such a calamity but mr. obama vowed to veto it and the senate killed it. . instead mr. he obama tells us he'll veto any plan that stops taxes going up on all those very wealthy folks making over $200,000, who he says need to pay their fair share. i suppose fairness is in the eyes of the beholder. the top 1% earned 17% of all income but pays 37% of all income taxes. but that's beside the point. the fine point of it is that a lot of these very wealthy folks making over $200,000 aren't very wealthy, and they aren't even folks. they are 1.3 million struggling small businesses filing under subchapter s. our small businesses produce 2/3 of the new jobs in our economy. so this battle is very much for the middle class. the congressional budget office estimates that mr. obama's tax increase on the so-called wealthy will actually throw 200,000 middle and working class families into unemployment. 00,000 -- 200,000 lost jobs. that is the optimistic estimate.
not successfully negotiated a single new trade agreement during the first four years of the obama administration. and this administration has not yet asked congress for a renewal of trade promotion authority despite the fact that that t.p.a. expired over five years ago. the cost of inaction on trade is high because today we live in a global economy where american producers rely on access to foreign markets. more than 95% of global consumers live outside the united states. consider that in 1960 exports accounted for only 3.6% of u.s. g.d.p. today exports account for 12.5% of our g.d.p. exports of u.s. goods and services support over 10 million american jobs. if we do not aggressively pursue new market opening agreements on behalf of american workers, we will see new export opportunities go to foreign businesses and foreign workers. so while i'm pleased that we're considering pntr today, i hope that president obama in his second term will recognize the potential for increased trade opportunities through a more aggressive trade agenda. i look forward to the president signing this legislation into l
the wealthy. i had not considered this. that's no question president obama has a socialist leanings. he wants to redistribute wealth. i do. new line-- once this debate is over, the president may have a large agenda. that agenda is that the president wants a wealth tax. that would be different. it was all about it, in 1913. the president wants say wealth tax. that means you tax their assets and not their income. he talked about how mitt romney had these accounts of sure. if the tax the wealth of an individual, then they cannot do this by saying i want to have a wealth tax. he has to negotiate with republicans and couple it with a flat tax. we have to overhaul our tax system. i think that is what the president's intentions are. host: when is your review show broadcast -- when is your radio show broadcast and what do you talk about? us radio. is on serious rad we have gone into the situation where all we want to do -- the left wants to divinize the right and the right ones to demonize the left. if people do not agree, you want to vanquish them and make them appear to be irrelevant. something hap
